Special to the
Opelika Observer

The Lee County Humane Society (LCHS) needs the community’s help clearing the shelter, as it is operating at maximum capacity and its kennels are completely full.
For the first time in LCHS history, the shelter will be offering a “Name Your Own Price” adoption fee special for adoption-ready animals during this four-day special. All adoption-ready animals are altered, vaccinated, heartworm and/or felv/fiv tested, dewormed and more. If animals are not already altered, there will be a $50 non-refundable fee to hold or reserve the pet or adoption until it can be spayed or neutered.
There are currently more than 100 pets available for adoption – 11 of which have been in LCHS care for more than 100 days. Meet and greets with the entire family and other pets is recommended. Some adoptable animals are in foster care, so call ahead to schedule a meet and greet if you are interested in a specific animal.
All available pets can be viewed online at www.leecountyhumane.org/adopt.
All dogs are required to leave the shelter with a leash and collar. All cats are required to leave the shelter in a cat carrier. The shelter has leashes, collars and cat carriers available for purchase to anyone who does not bring their own.
The shelter is open for adoptions from noon to 5 p.m.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, the shelter will be open Tuesday through Sunday and is closed on Mondays. It is located at 1140 Ware Drive.
